Bark Busters Home Dog Training Reno NV
I had been through everything to deal with my dog's separation anxiety - even after 7 months coaching from UC Davis' animal behavior program there was no change. None of the numerous medications made a difference in this dog - I began to think, "He's just a high-strung dog, he'll always be this way, just adapt as best you can John." After one meeting with Katherine of Bark Busters, there was an immediate change in behavior! Its been a month now and he's the perfect dog! All I can talk about is what happened with my dog but, believe me, he was as tough as they come. He is my 5th dog and I can't imagine any dog that would not get results from this program - its great!John M.June 21 2017

The most important thing your dog needs to understand is that you're their leader in virtually all aspects of their lives. I teach my clients how to be the "leader of the pack" by educating and coaching them. This is essentially how to root out your dog's unwanted behavior issues which will ultimately lead to a fun, happy and well-balanced relationship with your dog. When I work with you, I'll teach you how to correct unwanted behaviors and communicate to your dog by using only body language and voice tones which is essentially how they communicate to each other. (It's really an amazing and proven technique!)
I do in-home, private behavioral and obedience dog training because that is where we can get the most attention from the dog, it's where most problems occur, and it's where we can obtain the fastest results. Clients see results literally in the very first session!
Many of my clients come to me after other types of dog training methods have failed. (Don't give up on your dog without working with me first.) Busters Home Dog Trainers have saved many dogs across the country that would have been given up or put to sleep without our training. My clients learn how to eliminate the "bad dog" behaviors like:
- Nuisance barking
- Aggression behavior
- Jumping up
- Pulling on the leash and walking to heel
- Basic obedience (sit, stay, down, come)
- Digging in the yard
- Toileting in the house
- Separation anxiety
- Puppy training
- Over excitement
- And MORE!
I love dogs - small dogs, big dogs, and virtually ANY breed of dog. You might see me, my dogs and my Bark Buster car tooling through your neighborhood.

how we can help you and your dog
The Bark Busters Home Dog Training Methods helps solve dog behavior issues such as aggression towards people or other animals
- Cure embarrassing habits like barking, jumping up on people, scratching & whining at doors or inappropriate toileting.
- Create an obedient dog or puppy that will happily walk on the lead without tugging, sit or stay on command, and come immediately when called.
- Set off-limit areas for your dog.
- Reduce the stress of separation anxiety without the need for sedatives or drugs.
We teach you to communicate with your pet.
Blah, blah, blah, bad dog! blah blah. Do you think your dog isn't listening to you? Maybe you're simply not speaking his language. You may have heard of dog whisperer or dog listener techniques. The Bark Busters dog training method is based on the way dogs communicate with each other and how they learn from older, more important dogs in the pack. This is what makes our dog training unique and effective.
Why do we train in your home?
Your dog lives with a family, in a home. This is where he misbehaves most often so this is where training is most effective. Dogs learn by association. Bark Busters teaches your dog to listen in the home environment. If he does not listen at home, he will not listen outside your territory.
Training in your home is a one-on-one system without the distraction of other dogs or the stress of being sent away for training.
Of course, where you are experiencing problems outside the home such as pulling on the lead or dog aggression, we will set up controlled training situations in the park or wherever is most practical.
